    Kettlebell DVD recommendations

    Shop Now
    I know Grok didn't do kettle bell DVDs, but I would like to. I have one that I like, but I am looking for more variety. I am not looking for beginner workouts... probably intermediate to advanced or better yet, one with multiple levels on one DVD. Any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    I am interested in this as well.

    I have Kettlebell Lifting 1: Master the Basics. It does a good job of explaining how to do the movements correctly.

    Lauren Brooks is the KB Queen. She don't play.

    You can buy her videos on Amazon or here:
    Kettlebell Workout and Pregnancy Videos

    She has a YouTube channel to peruse, to see if you think you'll like her. (I love her.)

    Her channel:
    kbellqueen's Channel - YouTube


    You said you wanted intermediate/advanced. You can start with her second video then:

    Go to US Kettlebells - Welcome! and go to the store and they have 3 different workout dvd's that are good. I like the Kettlebells but I like Scott Sonnons circular strenth clubbell. It is simalar to the kettlebell but in club form and you can do more and provide a slightly different workout. With clubbell you can get more a complete circular (all direction) workout. take a look, you will be supprised.

    I'm not sure what you need a video for, it's not like a dance or aerobic move. Ideally, you just need some programming for how to structure a workout. I like an even number of seconds working to an even number resting, say 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off for 10 to 15 minutes. Alternatively if you want more endurance, I have tried doing say snatches without putting the KB down for 10 minutes and only one hand switch so you really have to pace yourself and rest in lockout position. Once you know the moves, it is up to you do program the set and rest.

    I second the clubbell recommendation and like the Clubbell Blackbook for programming.

    +10000 on the Skogg System...I trained with them for almost 2 years. Great people, and the dvds are awesome.

    Do two five minute rounds with say a 2 minute break in between. I don't have a heavy bag, shadow boxing instead would be fine or substituting more KB moves. In general though, this 30 seconds of intense KB work, followed by 30 seconds of active recovery (shadow boxing, goblet squats, stretching, etc., is all you really need).
